Effective immediately, Airbnb has banned all parties and events at their rentals. If hosts or guests skirt the rules, they say there will be consequences. During the pandemic, Airbnb had a similar rule in place. This time, it seems to be a permanent rule.
Airbnb has, also, announced a 16 person cap for all stays.
The powers that be at Airbnb say they realize that some people have taken a bar and night club atmosphere to their rental and say that behavior is "incredibly irresponsible." Airbnb is making it clear that is not the type of atmoshphere they desire for their business model.
